At NAMM 2020, Mackie will present its latest entry into the portable PA market, the all-new SRM-Flex portable column PA system. Featuring an lightweight design, a full-featured 6-channel digital mixer, and complete wireless control and streaming for solo acts, small bands, presentations, events, DJs, and more.
The modular design of SRM-Flex features a 10-inch LF woofer in the molded cabinet base module which also contains the 1300W amplifier and built-in digital mixer. The 3-piece tower houses a wide-dispersion array with 6 x 2-inch HF drivers for clear, whole room coverage. This modular tower design allows the user to easily change the height of the mid and high frequencies to match the ear level of the audience.
“Portability is a major factor with a portable PA, and SRM-Flex delivers,” says Craig Reeves, Mackie product manager. “At under 30 pounds, the SRM Flex is easy to carry one handed, and it’s small size means it will fit easily into the trunk of your car – or even on the bus.”
The SRM-Flex has been meticulously tuned, utilizing the latest in acoustic measurement technology for clear sound that is balanced and punchy.
The built-in 6-channel digital mixer provides everything you need to get your sound and mix just right. Two flexible mic/line inputs accept microphones, instruments, and more. There is also a dedicated stereo channel with dual 1/4-inch line inputs and a dedicated 1/8-inch aux in / Bluetooth streaming channel. Channels 1 and 2 are equipped with individual 2-band EQs and reverb level controls with 3 different reverbs to choose from. To tailor the entire system to your application, there are 3 voicing modes available at the push of a button. Connecting to a second SRM-Flex or house PA is easy via the professional XLR mix out.
Control is fast and easy, even mid-performance, thanks to dedicated physical controls for every critical adjustment. For even more freedom, the SRM-Flex Connect app allows wireless control from your iOS or Android device. The app not only provides the same control available on the SRM-Flex itself, but offers even more customization like front LED and metering behavior, presets, and more.
“SRM-Flex is incredibly easy to get up and running and sounding great,” remarks Reeves. “And with full physical controls plus complete wireless control, adjustments on the fly are stress-free”.
The Mackie SRM-Flex portable column PA system is available now at a US MAP price of $999.99. For an up close and personal look at it, and the rest of the newest Mackie gear, visit Mackie at NAMM 2020, January 16-19, at the Anaheim Convention Center in room 201D.
